Along with Club Monaco, J Crew is on our ‘must visit’ list of stores when visiting the US. Both brands offer affordable, good quality, wearable clothes. They are fashion forward without being scary, usually in lovely colour palettes and suitable for all ages – we wish we could say that about more UK fashion brands!
Sadly both brands only have limited availability in the UK, Club Monaco is available online and in store through a collaboration with Browns, and a small range of J Crew is available on Net-a- Porter. But from the end of August, J Crew have decided to bring the whole range to the UK, with the launch of an ecommerce site.
Super stylish creative director Jenna Lyons (see her gorgeous house and style in the September issue of British Vogue) says “We’d love to open stores in the UK, I’m absolutely champing at the bit to do it!”
How fabulous would that be? But for now, we are quite happy to make do with the new site. Shipping to the UK costs a flat rate of £9.95, so it makes sense to buy lots!!
